Dear Opti sailors and families, we have a busy second half of the season coming up, the committee has been working hard, with Australian Sailing SA and clubs,  to make a great program for the Opti sailors. In addition we are starting to plan for next season. We are very excited that there is a lot of new sailors joining the class at many clubs, 2018/19 is sure to be great. Parents, we will be seeking volunteers for many tasks to ensure the children can have a great program and run the events, sailing experience is not required to help out, please make contact to let us know your availability.
